“Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.”

The Highs and Lows
I’ve often heard motivational speakers and many life coach speak about their ‘low’ points as their turning point for success. They speak as if you MUST hit rock bottom to realise your potential. Well you know the tea bag proverb, that you really don’t know how strong you are, until you’re in hot water. Well I don’t fully agree with this, I think we don’t realise our FULL potential until we’re in hot water. But, you don’t have to hit that low point to become successful, though it does help because when you have nothing to lose you tend to risk it all.
Whether you’ve hit your low or you’re riding that high. It’s not the lack of things that hinders success, or prevents you from maintaining that success. It’s the lack of awareness that prevents us from striving for something greater or holding on to it once we’ve achieved it. The lack of our awareness of our own worth; the lacking of self-worth and not knowing, feeling, and understanding that we as people, children of infinite creator (God, Allah, Jehovah), not only deserve, but was promised a life full of joy, abundance, and love.
In my opinion, the ‘low’ allows our minds to open to new and better possibilities. Instead of just living the basics, we feed our thirst for something better, thus gaining momentum to better our conditions.
